Ubisoft Announces Major Changes To Its Club Points System
If you’re a big fan of Ubisoft games like phenomenally received Assassin’s Creed series, Tom Clancy, and Far Cry titles, you likely have a Ubisoft Club Points account. It’s sweet program developed by the company for gamers to get more out of playing their favorite past-times. Despite the ease of earning neat rewards all this time, the company reveals major changes heading everyone’s way. Unfortunately, this means that free loot will cease to exist.
Completing achievements, reaching checkpoints, and various other challenges earned players pretty sweet, exclusive in-game prizes. In other words, there are rewards that will never see the light of day unless you’re a club member, but this perk won’t last much longer. According to their official support page, the studio will no longer support Club Units, which is their own digital currency used to purchase exclusive prizes. The statement is as follows:
Beginning April 1, 2019, you have 24 months to redeem the Club Units you acquired through your gaming experience or by making eligible purchases on the Ubisoft Store. After 24 months, these Club Units will expire and will automatically disappear from your Ubisoft Account. Each time you redeem Club Units, the oldest Club Units will be redeemed first.
There will be a transition period between now until March 31st, 2019, which gives members plenty of time to redeem those hard-earned Club Units. Any points earned before or on March 31st, 2017 is eligible for use, but any sum left in the account after the 2019 date will disappear forever. “If you have redeemed more Club Units than you got 24 months ago, no Club Unit expire,” states Ubisoft. “On the contrary, if you have redeemed less Club Units than the ones you owned 24 months ago, the difference will expire on March 31, 2019.”
Are you bummed to see the termination of Ubisoft Club Units or do you think they served little purpose? Should the team think of other ways to incentivize their membership program?
